The statement read in part:
“Sir, it is our prayer that your tenure will have religious harmony, tolerance of one and another and above all demonstration of equity and fairness to all. Our advice is for you to continue with the good of the previous administrations, review and consult widely on other areas before modification.
“We as traditionalists who are non-partisan as an organisation had prayed fervently to God and the deities to appoint the chosen one for us in Osun. It is our belief that for you to have emerged and sworn in, it is divine and all and sundry must pray for your success and the growth of Osun.
“Sir, as you hit the ground running, be rest assured of our support, prayers and availability to cooperate with you in areas where the ideals of our culture and tradition are required for the attendant benefits or where decisions are hinged on tradition."
